Blogging, however, is not how I make money online. Seriously. The whole point of this website is really to help people make more money online, yet I’ve never showed a single one of you any proof that I make money online myself. even built an audience of 10,000 subscribers who look forward to what I have to post. Without backing up what I’m trying to teach, though, I feel pretty much like a fraud.
